Cap'n, that Whiskey went down very well. I've been around although a bit quieter in the last few months. Work kept me busy with a big IT project and Uni on top of that. Just finished my last exam so now looking forward to finding where I stashed my personal life, rejoining society and enjoying the summer.
mfdrookie, it's not the same cylinder. I've got a "swap n go" arrangement so each time I take back an empty one, they swap it for a new full one. The empty cylinders then get sent back to their suppliers for testing and refilling. The Beer Brew Barn is just the distributor.
The cylinder itself came from a company called "Keg King". They are responsiblefor the testing, maintenance and certification. I'll definitely be calling them today.
Matt, this is my third cylinder. My first two got emptied within in 4-5 days becuase I couldn't find where a leak was occuring. As it happens, I think I might have found the problem on this third guy. I hooked it up last night and after 30mins of soaping and observing, I can't find a leak. I weighed the bottle yesterday 9.9kg. When I weighed it this morning it was 10.3kg. So for the first time since I bought all this equipment, I appear not to be leaking gas.
The guy from The Beer Brew Barn where I get my cylinders from, said it was really bizzare. He drives around CO2
cylinders every day when delivering and picking up keg systems for hire. Our safety laws for such items like this are about as tough as they come. But I guess its always a possibility one can get through either untested or pass testing when it shouldn't. I think what happened to me is an extremely rare case.
Blueiz, I was definitely dizzy and nauseous but I dont think it was due to the gas itself. I got out of the car too quickly. The Whiskey helped the shock
